Three Part Series on Selenium

Part One-Selenium Metamorphosis

Part Two-The Case for Selenium

Part Three-Selenium Deficiency

Selenium is an essential trace mineral critical for antioxidant defense, fertility, thyroid hormone metabolism, immune response, and muscle development.  First discovered in 1817, selenium was considered a toxic substance best avoided. 140 years later, in 1957, the status of Selenium dramatically changed with a report of the first selenium deficiency disease. This four part series reviews the importance of selenium and selenoproteins, and their role as master protectors in the body.
